About Us

The Passaic County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCSPCA) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, humane welfare, education, and advocacy organization. Operating since the 1890s, Passaic County SPCA is an all-volunteer group.

Education lies at the heart of all our work. PCSPCA believes education is the best way to prevent animal cruelty and neglect.

To meet its mission, PCSPCA operates the county’s only pet food pantry and mobile pet food pantry; hosts and participates in community events to educate residents about good pet ownership and prevention of animal cruelty and neglect; and, collaborates with different partners, county agencies and others to advocate for the enforcement of current and the creation of new legislation related to animal rights and protections.

As a nonprofit agency, PCSPCA receives NO state, county, or local funding. Our continued mission relies on financial assistance and pet food donations from our dedicated animal advocates and lovers.

Remember, if you encounter suspected animal cruelty or neglect, contact your local police department, or if the situation warrants, call 911.
